Faculty Training

SARA offers the following for school-based faculty and staff.

All trainings are most effective at 90 minutes, but can be shortened to 45 minutes if necessary.

Understanding Sexual Harassment in School: Red Flags and Interventions

SARA Prevention Educators provide the most up-to-date information on sexual harassment around the country, and facilitate discussion about what it looks like, how it impacts victims, and how faculty and staff can be instrumental in diffusing the situation.

Gender Equity in School

From “fag” to “slut” and beyond, adolescents know how to tear each other down using the shame of American gender norms. This training helps faculty and staff analyze gender norms as they play out in daily life, and gives them the skills to be proactive and do something about it.

Sexual Harassment: Liability and Rule Enforcement

It’s not enough just to have rules against sexual harassment and sexual offenses at school. If the policies are not enforced, it can be just as harmful as having no rule at all. SARA staff collaborate with administrators to match the training to the school’s own practices, goals, strengths, and weaknesses. Then we provide an interactive training that helps faculty and staff develop awareness and skills to consistently and fairly enforce policies.

Cultivating an Empathetic Classroom

Empathy and the value of a human being is drastically disappearing among our students. SARA offers tips and techniques to enhance empathy among all students.

Building Momentum

For schools who participate in our three-year consulting programs. During the final year, we report to the faculty about attitudes we've measured, things we've heard from students, and changes we’re seeing. We offer tips for enhancing the positive changes, as well as ideas to address problems we've spotted. Select teachers are provided with intensive SARA training, and are introduced as the key resource for other faculty when questions or situations arise.
